OTA is an excellent choice

I’m going to share my own experience with trading and OTA, mentioning that my goal is to be a full-time trader. Currently I’m working as Sr. software engineer at a brokerage firm in Europe. I was following OTA years ago but I didn’t join it at that time cause of the cost. So, I decided to educate myself and took some other courses but I always felt that I missed somethings because my trading results weren’t that good. So, a year ago I decided to join OTA but really slowly to evaluate my education investment, mentioning that I have some trading experience or at least that’s what I thought. I enrolled only in one course with OTA which is Core Strategy. After I finished it, I gained a huge amount of information which I didn’t know before. After that I decided to continue with the other courses like Futures, Options and MasterMind program. Thanks for the OTA team. They helped me to arrange my education track to fit with my plan and provided me with all the tools and ideas to reach my goal as quickly as possible. When I joined the MasterMind program, I figured out there is information, trading ideas and trading strategies more than I would ever think about. For sure, I’m so happy with my education investment because my trading results started to become better. I’m also busy with developing my own automatic trading application. Thanks again for OTA education. Now I’m at the end of my track but do you think the education stops here? No, the best thing in OTA is that they have a community of students, experienced students and instructors who provide new trade ideas and strategies and discuss it every single day. Finally, trading is like any career, you need to invest time, effort and money to reach your goal. If you want to take trading as your career, become a part-time trader or to increase your income, OTA is an excellent choice.

Thank you for the excellence in education

Last week Chuck Fulkerson had asked us to submit a review for the Pro Trader XLT he gave to the class. The letter is attached. I’d only add I’ve attended Platform Immersion, Trade Plan Prep and now have completed my second day of Futures with Don Dawson. All equally amazing.

Dear Chuck Fulkerson,

I wrote a lot of letters while serving as a medic in the US Army. That experience helped me become a very good note taker in college and now here with OTA. As example, this last week I recorded 16 pages of notes, (two lines, single-spaced) while attending the Tim Pesut Pro Trader class here in Minneapolis, and this wasn’t my first experience with the material.

Before I review Tim’s class, I would like to share that I’ve been with OTA for about one year, attending all asset classes within the first four months or so. My wife and I decided to move back to our home state after twenty-four years of practicing as Chiropractor in Wisconsin, and, to make a long story short, I needed to hire an associate doctor to free up my schedule. The process took a bit longer than I anticipated, which caused a lapse in my learning curve. Enrolling in the retake course has been enlightening, and based on taking multiple classes with differing instructors, my exposure to the OTA Program has been significant.

I’m not sure I can properly communicate to you the words to describe how impressed I am with the quality education and instructors who facilitate the OTA Program. I’ve been around the block a few times: B.S. degree, Doctorate in Chiropractic, multiple postgraduate certification programs, continuing ed., etc. My experience with the OTA instructors can be summed up in one word – amazing! From Mike Siewruk who did the Market Timing Workshop (a big reason why I joined OTA with my son Josh as MMC) to Scott Chrisan-Pro Trader, Ed Ponsi-Forex, and Craig Weil-Futures – all my instructors were informative, inviting, and very accommodating. They relay difficult material with patience and compassion. And they are genuinely interested in their students’ comprehension. Whatever policies and procedures are being used by OTA for selecting instructors, I wouldn’t change a thing!

Most recently, the Tim Pesut’s lecture in Minneapolis last week was over the top. The best week of education I’ve ever experienced anywhere. It was like being in the room with Mad Money Cramer amount of information yet taught to us in a much more John Wayne relaxed style of learning. I’m sure he would love that comparison. Tim’s ability to share market interrelationships and the dynamics of many asset classes as well as Equities was phenomenal; his material resonates with returners (like myself) and the first timers, who though feeling overwhelmed are able to glean important take-a-ways from his talks because of the comfortable, welcoming atmosphere Tim creates.

In addition to the material and instructors, this center is another example of OTA’S commitment to excellence. Kevin Young, the owner, is very dedicated and supportive to the needs of our students. Ray Hague runs a very smooth program. Monica keeps us all organized. My counselor, Shawn Johnson, and the student support staff, Spencer Lewis and Stephanie Struzyk, seem to always be available and eager to assist the students with their needs.

In summary, my experience with OTA across the board has been nothing short of a “WOW.” As I get ready to go live, I’m sure there will be struggles and many challenges. When I do have to face them I know there is a team of people available and ready to help.

Thank you for the excellence in education.
